From a young age, Keldon Johnson dreamed of putting on the USA Jersey and competing in the Olympics. Through hard work and dedication to his craft, Johnson made that dream come true. His journey to the National Team was demanding, as he had to prove himself continuously. The 29th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft had a quiet first year for the Spurs. He turned things around his sophomore year when he played 69 games and averaged 12.8 points along with 6.0 rebounds per game. After emerging as a rising star, Johnson was given the opportunity to suit up for the Select Team. He continued to prove himself when competing with the superstars, earning him a spot to compete in Tokyo. In Tokyo, Johnson saw minutes in four different games. He would go on to win the National Team’s fourth consecutive Gold Medal after their victory over France.
